Nexar launched CityStream, a solution that creates digital road maps and captures high-frequency, localized data from the road in real-time.

Using the Nexar connected-dashcam network, CityStream is digitizing the public space and is opening up Nexar’s car-sourced data to cities looking for actionable insights into traffic patterns, real-time vehicle routing, city dynamics and infrastructure management.

As part of the launch, Nexar has created an animated video (nxr.cm/citystream) illustrating the connected dashcam network, as well as the CityStream data platform, and the way in which the technology can benefit cities and other municipalities in real-time.

To date, most efforts to gain visibility of a city’s roadways require expensive, stationary hardware that has a limited reach. Nexar’s CityStream provides an innovative solution by leveraging smartphones that millions of city drivers already own, and as a result, turning every vehicle into a sensor that visually scans the road providing invaluable insights.

Nexar’s mobile app uses on-device artificial intelligence (AI) to create a digital map to capture the driving scene and produces a low-latency information ‘firehose’ of GIS tagged objects of road obstacles, traffic conditions, and the state of infrastructure.
